How many yean, and through what
changes or furiuno and various culamity,
had that bottlo hoarded up its clTervcsceiit
joy, to bo quailed at lust by two such boon
companions I A portion ol tho happiness
of u former age had been kept for thtm,
and was now set free, in a crowd of re
joicing visions, to sport amid tho storm
and desolation of thu proiunt time. Until
they huvo tlmshed tbo bottle, wa must
turn oar eyes olsowbiro.
It so chanced, that, on this stormy
night, Mr. John Drown (ound himself ill
ut vutts, in his wiro-cush'.uncd arm-chair,
oy inn glowing grato ol anthracite, which
heated his handsome parlor. Ilo wus
naturally a good sort of a man, and kind
and pitilul, whenever tbo misfortunes of
others happened to roach his heart
through thu padded vest of bis own pros
perity. This evening, ho hud thought
much about his old partnur, Peter Gold
ihwuile, Li, tra:ig4vaguries, and continual
ill luck, tho poverty oi his dwulling, at
Mr. lirown's last visit, und Peter's crazed
and haggard apect, when ho had talkod
with him ul the. window.
"Poor fellow I" thought Mr. Urown.
"Poor, cru,ckhrnlnod Poler Goldlhwuitol
For old xuquHlntanco' sake, I ought to
have taken caro that ho wus comfortable
this rough winter."
Tbu.-u fueling grow so powerful, that,
in eplierof thu uiclemont weuiher, hu ru
solvud to visit Puler Uoldthwaiiu Immedi
ately. Tho strength of the impul.o wus
really slugular. Every shriek of iho
Ll ut seemed it summons, or wouM huvo
buemud bo,had Mr.iiruwu beun accustomed
to hear the echoos of his own fancy in the
wind. Much amazed ut such u;nvu be
nuvolencu, hu huddled himself in his cloak,
muttlud his throat anil cars in comforters
und handkerchiefs, and thus fur tilled, badu
dotluucu to thu tempest. Jiut tho powers
of tho uir hud rather tho best of thu bat
tle. Mr. Urown whs just weathering tho
corner, by Potor Goldthwaitu's house,
when tho hurrlcano caught bim oil' his
leot, tossod him face downwurd into n
suow-bahk, nnd proceeded to bury his
protuberant part beneuth fresh drifts.
Thero seemed littlo hope of his roappoar
itncu, earlier tlmn the next tlmw. At tho
sumo moment, his hat wus snatched nwny,
and whirled ulolt into somo far distant re
gion, whonco no tidings havo us yot re
turned. Novortholrss Jlr. Drown contrived to
burrow n passugu through tho snow-drift,
and, with his bare head bent ugainst thu
storm, floundered onward to Putor's door,
Ther was euch a croaking, and groaning,
nud rattling, an such un omlnom shaking
throughout tho crazy cdillco, that thu
loudest rap would huvo been Inaudible to
those within. Ho thoruforo en
tered without corcmony, aud groped
his way to the kitchen.
Ills intrusion, oven thero, was un
noticed. Petor and Tabitha stood with
their bucks to tho door, stooping ovor a
largo chest, which, apparently, thuy had
just dragged from a cavity, or concealed
closet, on tho lolt tldo of tho chimney,
lly tho lamp in the old woman's baud,
Mr. Drown saw that tho chest was barrod
nnd clumped with iron, strengthened with
iron plates, and studded with iron nails,
no us to bo a 111 receptaclo in which tho
wealth of ono century might bo hoarded
up for tho wnnts of anolhor. Potor
Uoldthwailo was inserting u key into tbo
'0 Tabithal" criod ho, with tremulous
rapturo, "how thrill I endure the of
fulgonco? Tho gold I tho bright, bright
gold I Mothinks I can romombor my last
Slanca at it, Just as tho iron-plated lid fell
own, And ovor elnco, being seventy
years, it has been blazing in s.-cret, and
gathoring its splendor against this glorl
ous moment I It will flash upjn us like
tho noonday sun I"
"Then shado vour eyes, Mr. Petor 1"
said Tabilha, with somewhat loss patlonco
that, usual. "But, for morcy'a aako do
turn tho koyl"
And, with a strong effort of both hands,
Peter did force tho rusty koy through the
Intricacies ol tho rusty lock. Mr. Brown,
in tho moan time, had drawn near, and
thrust liis oagor vlsugo botwen those of
tho other two, at tho lntant Potor throw
up tho lid. No suddon bluzo illuminated
" What's horo 7 " oxelaimod
Tabitha, ndjuiling hor spoctaclcs.
nnd holding tho lamp ovor tho open chest,
' Old Putor Ooldthwalte's hoard of rags."
"Protty much sn, Tabby," said Brown,
lifting a handful of thu treasure.
O, what a ghost of burled wealth bad
Pfter Ouldtnwnito raised, toscarnhimsolf
out of his scanty wits withal 1 Hero was
tho tembtanco of an Incalculable sum,
(though to purchase the wholo town, and
build every street nnow, but which, vast
ns it was, no sann mm wo.ild havo givon
a slxpenco fur. "What, then, In sober rarn
cst, worn tho dolualro treasures of the
chnit? Why, horo worn old provincial
bills of credit, nnd treasury notes, and
bills of land banks, and all other bub
blos of tho sort, from the first lsmo, above
a century nnd a half ago, down nearly to
tho revolution. ISilU of a thousand
pounds were intermixed wiih parchment
pennies and worth no moro than they.
"And this. then, is old Peter Gold-
thwulto's trcaiurol" said John Drown.
'Your namosake, Petor, was something
llko yourself; aud, when Iho provincial
currency had depreciated fifty or seventy-
11 vi pur cunt, ho bought It up with tho ex
pectation of a riso. I havo beird my
grandfather say, that old Potcr gavo his
lather a mortgugo of this very houso and
land, to raise, cash for his silly project.
But tho currency kept sinking, till nobody
would taku It us a irift: and thcru was old
Peter Goldthwaitc, llko Petor tho second,
with thousands in his strong box, and
hardly a coat to bis back. Ho wont mad
upon tin strength of it. But, novor mind,
l'uter i Jt is just tho sort or capital ror
building castles in the air."
"The houso will bo down about our
cars I" cried Tabitha, as tho wind shook it
with increasing violence.
"Lt it falll" said Potor, folding his
arms, ns ho seated himself upon the chest.
"o, no, my oldrrlend I'eler," said John
Brown. "I huvo houso room for you and
Tabby, and a tafo vault for the chest of
treasure. To-morrow wo will try to eomo
to' an agreoment about tho sale of this old
house. Ileal estate is well up, and I could
nfl'ord you n pretty handsome prico."
